Blog Buyer A New Perspective

A New Perspective

By Kevin Salisbury, November 3, 2020

As we approach the end of the year, I always spend time reflecting back on the market for that year — where my business came from, whether I was able to improve my level of service and expertise, and the motivations that inspired buying and selling decisions. This year was markedly different from any previous year for many obvious reasons. As Realtors, we all had to adapt to changes in the way we conduct business — Zoom calls instead of face-to-face meetings, no-contact showings and never-ending supplies of hand sanitizer.

In many ways, the vast reduction in face-to-face interaction was the hardest part to cope with. Building and maintaining solid connections with my friends and clients is one of the most rewarding parts about my career, and being able to spend time together in-person has always been my favorite way to do so.

With that said, the intrinsic gratification of helping a client accomplish their goals seemed to be at an all-time high this year. Many people’s motivation for buying or selling a home this year was predicated on the idea of finding more space. Whether that be for multiple offices to work-from-home, more yard space for spending time outdoors or more space to spread out at home and stay sane, it seemed that everyone was looking for ways to develop a new appreciation for being at home, since all of us were spending so much more time there. And with the heightened sense of anxiety that so many of us have been feeling, there were additional layers of stress added to each real estate transaction.

All of this made things just that much more exciting though, when a client was able to successfully accomplish what they set out to do. And, it helped add some sparks of joy to both mine and my client’s year. I am always so grateful for all my friends and clients who choose to work with me, but this year has been extra special. Thank you all for your continued trust and support!
